The City of San Antonio is committed to strengthening coordination and connection to services for San Antonio’s immigrant community.

LEGAL SERVICES FOR LOW-INCOME SAN ANTONIO RESIDENTS

The City funds three legal service providers to assist low-income San Antonio residents and educate the community on immigrant rights and legal representation. These legal services include education seminars, counseling, and legal representation on a variety of issues including veteran issues, landlord-tenant, identification recovery for homeless, immigration, and simple wills. The following providers are funded by the City:

  • American Gateways in partnership with Texas RioGrande Legal Aid
    210.521.4748; 210.212.3700
  • Catholic Charities
    210.226.6178
  • Refugee & Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES)
    210.222.0964

The FY 2018 City Budget added a position to serve as the first City Immigration Community Liaison under the Office of the City Manager. This position will work with the community, stakeholder groups, nonprofit and interfaith organizations to establish a strong network to coordinate and connect San Antonio’s immigrant community to services.

SUPPORT SERVICES

Department of Human Services programs – including Senior Services, Head Start, Family Assistance, and more – are open and available to all immigrants and all populations in the San Antonio community. For more information on DHS services, please call 210.207.7830.
